tasty cake

Mary made a white cake with cream cheese frosting. The cream cheese frosting is very rich.

And to top it all off, she put some cherry pie filling sauce over the top of the pieces of the cake as we cut them. We did this because the cherry sauce had a tendency to run off the cake.

Tonight for supper we had Manwich sandwiches and potato salad on a bed of lettuce. The weather is getting warmer and Mary is trying to prepare summertime style meals with cold style salads such as the potato salad that we had tonight. She told me that we will be having macaroni salad and pasta salad and coleslaw with upcoming meals. The heat is making me a believer in global warming. I usually get up around 5:30 am and I miss stepping out the back door and feeling the crisp cool morning air on my face. Now the early morning air is very humid and warm. I know that the crisp cool air will return in November. But November is 5 months away plus the heat will get a lot worse before it gets better.

Today was lunch at an "all-you-can-eat" pizza buffet named Cici's. I started off with a nice salad, then on to the barbeque pizza (the concept may sound terrible but it is actually quite good) and then I finished up with apple crumb and brownie. We left the place stuffed. Plus we each had a coupon for a free soda so all we had to pay for was the buffet which was $4.99 each.

We stopped at the public library yesterday and checked out some of the movies on DVD. We will watch one of them tonight. We have been having some pretty good luck lately on getting good movies. Plus there is no charge for the movies from the library. One of the movies that we checked out was Public Enemy starring Leonardo DiCrappio. I believe that this movie showed in the theaters not that long ago. Checking out these movies on DVD from the public library for free is a really good deal. Be sure to visit your local library and do the same.

Here is hoping that everyone out there in "blog land" had an equally pleasant day. Lew

Sorry folks. Like the old conceited expression "I thought that I was wrong once, but I was mistaken". Well, this time I really was mistaken and there is no mistake about that. Leonardo DiCrapio was not the star of the movie Public Enemy. Johnny Depp was the star of the movie and the movie was good and full of action. We watched it last night. To make matters worse, I misspelled DiCrapio's name in my blog. I am surprised that Villager or Seaside didn't pick up on that. After that streak of bad luck I should buy a lottery ticket since the only luck that I have left is good luck. Sound logical? Take care, Lew
